with neither side showing a willing nose go first. mike emanuel on where he head now. >> reporter: pessimistic tone for heading for the fiscal cliff in days. president obama and senators cut the christmas vacation short. the leader is happy to review what the president has in mind but to date they have not put forward a plan. late today, mcconnell expressed frustration. >> this is a conversation we should have had months ago. republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything that senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the essential. >> asked if he was going over the cliff, biden joked cliff? what cliff? this has been operated with a dictatorship of the speaker. not allowing the vast majority of the representatives to get what they want. they want them to return in case a deal is in the final hours. today, the u.s. is heading over the cliff. >> what goes away next week is the bush tax cut that they loathed since they went in place a secon decade ago. don't assume the president wants to cut a deal. he wants to see if he'll be blamed for it before they negotiate.
in and we all feel the pain. mike emanuel live with the news for us tonight on capitol hill. top democrats seem to be suggesting they cannot cut a deal without republican help. >> well, harris, that is right. and so they are asking what it will take to at least get some republican support. they say time is so critical. they cannot just roll out new legislation only to have the republicans reject it. we know president obama called the top four congressional leaders last night on his way back from hawaii. tomorrow afternoon at the white house will be a meeting between the president and those top four congressional leaders and earlier the top senate democrat expressed concern or frustration saying you cannot legislate with yourself. >> the republicans in the house have left town. the negotiations between the president and the speaker have fallen apart as they have for the last three and a half years. we have tried mightily to get something done. >> now, perhaps in an effort to address that we know late today senator reid who you heard from there went to meet with his counter part senator mcc
points over the past five days. let's get to mike emanuel on capitol hill. how much stock are lawmakers putting in the white house meeting? >> depends who you ask. some republicans expressed concern it may be for show, essentially going to the white house, having a big meeting that everybody's talking about for the appearances that they're doing something. other suggest it's critical because time is running out. >> the window may be ajar but it's not wide open. and unless it closes -- or opens entirely today and there's a deal, it's more likely to close than stay open. in other words, if we don't have a deal in the next 24 hours, the question is where do you buy a parachute. it looks like we'll be going over the cliff. the closer we get to the end, the less likely it is you're going to be able to compress an agreement into place to have enough votes to pass. >> while rebounds and democrats may not agree on a lot. we heard from republicans and democrats that time is becoming critical and they're feeling the pressure of the calendar. >> trace: as you talk to lawmakers, how worried do they
brutal for bookstores but in this dark evolving narrative there may be opportunity. as cbs reporter mike sugerman explains, long-struggling libraries see a chance to turn the page. >> reporter: shelve this with the nonfiction the story of the scrappy hero who hang in there after being down for the count. check it out. shhh! not that it's a secret but libraries are making a comeback in a big way. >> anytime there's an economic downturn you see a resurgence in library use. >> reporter: that's the story here. san francisco libraries, for instance, seeing 40,000 new card carrying members last year. that's up 10%. while bookstores are dying, libraries are flourishing. and changing. >> it's not the grandmother's library. >> reporter: luis of san francisco librarian, american librarian of the year as a matter of fact, ebooks now make up 5% of circulation. you can borrow them for a couple of weeks, then they just disappear from your screen. or go old school. there's a typewriter room if you have to fill out a form or for whatever reason you might need a machine that visitors may never have seen
into a recession. gregg: mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. mike, any indication of the president's next move? >> reporter: well, gregg, last time we heard the president talk about the this matter he said he was calling on congressional leaders to essentially make sure taxes do not go up on middle class americans. presumably that would be a package that continues the bush tax cuts for those making up to $250,000. he would also like to continue emergency unemployment benefits for two million americans. and beyond that, details are kind of murky at this point. so we await the president to get back to washington. we know that the senate will be back in session today. we know there have been some conversations back and forth but at this point no indication that steps have moved forward closer to a deal, gregg. gregg: so, mike, if the senate comes back, what do we expect from them today? and then obviously the house? >> reporter: well, house speaker john boehner is in ohio. his aides told me a few moments ago ago if he has plans to travel. last night the speaker and the president of the united sta
about those that were killed. >> fireman mike chiporinni with the police department was deceased at the scene. scardino is in surgery, he's a fireman. and joseph happs is also a volunteer firefighter and a full time firefighter with the rochester fire department was also injured and is being treated at the scene. my lieutenant was a lifetime firefighter, i think he started out as an explorer, 20-year veteran of the police departm t department, lieutenant mik mike chiporinni. i know tomas was a younger individual, worked, again, for public service in the forefront, worked for 911, just by all accounts just a tremendous young man. these people get up in the middle of the night to put out fires they don't expect to be shot and killed. >> absolutely not. they don't expect to be shot at when they're coming to help put out flames and save lives. i want to show a picture to our viewers that we just got in of lieutenant mike chiporinni, one of the two officers that was killed. we don't have it for you. we'll get it to you next hour, for sure. the two that were injured are in the hospita
some perspective. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live for us in washington. a short time ago, another key lawmaker did not sound very optimistic, mike. >> reporter: harris, you would be right. that would be senate majority leader harry reid. seemed kind of irritated that house republicans and all house members are not here in washington trying to work out a deal on the fiscal cliff. here is more from leader reid a short time ago. >> if we go over the cliff and it looks like that's where we're headed, mr. president, the house of representatives, as we speak, with four days left after today before the first of the year aren't here with the speaker having told them they will give them 8 hours notice. i can't imagine their consciences. >> reporter: of course president obama has left hawaii. he is heading back to washington from his family vacation. we learned from the white house that the president had made calls to the top four congressional leaders mcconnell and boehner on the republican side, pelosi and reid on the democratic side. we'll see what the president has in
. it is at supersonic for reentry. the reason it does is that mike adams got killed while i was working at edwards during reentry. he did not have the pitch accurate within about that much range and he did not have the yaw accurate within about that much rain, and that haunted me. i thought that was the reason we would not have commercial space flight. the pilot for spaceshipone reentry -- by the way, there is not autopilot. the only thing controlling those controls are the rudder pedals on a mock 0.3 airplane. you have the electric fin on the tail. just like a piper cub.
